We were delighted with our first Revillion meal at Poydras & Peters. Each course a better delight that the previous one we had. The servers were polite, professional, attentive and friendly. This is one of the best meals we have had ever. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone in New Orleans!

Arrived early for reservation, no greeter present. Eventually asked if we’d been helped, we got seated by a very unpleasant woman. Waited at the table 20 minutes before anyone asked us if we’d been served, we said no and she claimed she would be right back. 10 more minutes pass, other guests who arrived after us were helped, waitresses pass us multiple times. No waters, no drinks, no appetizers. Maybe 6 tables of people total, definitely not busy. We walked out. Horrible service and experience.

We got to the restaurant 10 min before our 6p reservation. We waited 5 min or so to be seated. When we finally got to the booth it took 20 min for anyone to come over and even offer water. After we finally received menus and ordered two drinks – one pinot grigio for $6 and a mixed drink for $13 – we asked about the Reveillon menu. The first person to take our order wasn’t sure what Reveillon was and left to ask & the second server told us that it would not be served tonight. After it was advertised it would be occurring through Jan 1, 2020, she said that another table was also there for that same menu and she had to tell them the same thing. No actual reason given, just that they had their regular dinner menu. We decided to order two shareable plates – a charcuterie board (legit, same food I bought at Rouses earlier in the day) and artichoke dip (lukewarm when delivered). It took another 30 min to get these two items and in that time both waitresses tried to take our menus. I don’t know what kind of training P&P are giving their servers but I personally said I wanted to keep my menu as I had no idea what I wanted to order and they looked at me bewildered that I wanted to keep it. Are these menus made out of special, expensive paper?

In the 55 minutes we waited we saw two couples leave. The first couple – cute, hip, super in-love couple left after just receiving water (arrived after us and left before us). The second couple, a lovely elderly couple that was seated at the first couples table – that wasn’t even CLEANED and reset! They took a brief look at the menu and left the dirty table. We even received a plate from their first / second couples dirty table (the server gave us three plates for the four of us that ordered food.).

We spoke to the manager that was short with us, at best.

Our brunch food took over an hour to come out despite the fact that there were only 4 or 5 other tables seated. One table told us their food took almost two hours. We got a lot of apologies and they did comp the meal after the wait. But I’d steer clear unless they seriously improve their systems.

We had reservations for brunch at 9:45. Unfortunately, they did not have a table for us for 20 minutes. Once we sat at the table, it took an additional 15 minutes to pour water and to take a drink order. It also took an additional 25 minutes to get our coffee that we ordered. We had ordered our food and sat at the table for over one hour without any additional communication from the staff.

The kitchen may have been shorthanded; but, if the manager and or the wait staff would’ve communicated with us their reasons for a long wait time we could’ve made alternative accommodations earlier.

After 80 minutes, we offered to pay for our coffee and walked to another restaurant (Mother’s-5star).

We arrived with a party of eight. Restaurant was completely empty when we arrived for a business dinner at 7:15. Food was very good. Everyone in the group enjoyed their meal, except seven of the meals arrived together and we had to wait 8-10 minutes for the last person to be served. At the end of the meal, we were informed that the checks could not be split more than three ways. We did not think to ask about this in advance, so this is out fault. Still, it’s surprising that a restaurant that is located close to the convention center and is affiliated with a Loews hotel would not be more flexible and accommodating.

Not very "NOLAish". I first noticed that it was almost empty but then I understood why. The waitstaff was struggling with the orders and they were simple orders. The wait was long and the dining room was almost empty. I was not impressed with the food. It was plain. I would not recommend it. Thank you.

After having gone to Poydras and Peters five years ago and being pleasantly impressed, I felt really lucky to be able to get a spot there on a busy graduation weekend. However, my excitement quickly faded into remorse after sitting for 45 minutes just to get our Brunch. When we arrived, we were sat down at an absurdly large table, and when we asked to be moved to a booth, we were told that the booths were reserved and wouldn’t seat our party (no one ever sat in the booths, and we most definitely could have fit). There was a pleasant band playing, though, so I was not too perturbed. Then, the food came. The “Bayou Breakfast” came with Spiced Potatoes (these were flavorless and likely frozen) and Pecan-Infused Bacon (not pecan-infused, nor good bacon(they messed up bacon?!)). I ordered the Barbecued Shrimp and Grits, and it consisted of bad shrimp and grits floating in a sea of oil. We had also ordered the Avocado Toast, which came on white bread and practically none of the arugula it had promised. Then, the pièce de résistance: the “Giant” Cinnamon Roll. We had to wait even longer for this because there were some problems in the kitchen of some sort. When it finally arrived, we were shocked that a seemingly-nice restaurant would dare to serve us four mini Slice and Bake rolls after having charged us $10 for a Giant Cinnamon Roll. The only giant thing about the cinnamon rolls was how much of a disappointment they were. I should’ve taken a picture, but if you would like to see what they looked like, type in Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls on Google. I think it was said best when my father said, “Poydras and Peter? More like Poydras and Don’t Eat Here.” Good day.

Mother’s Day. Worst experience ever. We had reservations for 12. The brunch jazz band left as we sat. There we’re only two other tables. The service was horrible and the bill was inflated. They did not have three main fresh items in the brunch menu so I had to order fish from the kids menu and substituted the fries. I got the fries anyway and was charged $8 for side salad. The bill was inflated the best way she could inflate it and charged 20 percent gratuity for four adults and 2 children. The service was horrible and the alcoholic drinks didn’t arrive to the table for at-least 20 minutes with no one in the restaurant or bar. They over billed me $1-2 more for almost everything ordered then what the menu read. When I asked for the difference the waitresses and the manager looked at me like I was crazy and one said “ so we owe you $3” and laughed. They are lucky I didn’t ask for more of the mistakes to be corrected and the gratuity to be removed so I could tip what she deserved. I handed the difference to the valet and left knowing I would never return. I was thankful to be with my mother and family so it didn’t ruin our day. The inflation of the bill made them appear dishonest. I see why the Brennan’s left this place. There are way to many restaurants to spend $180 in. Don’t waste your time and money here hence that’s why I’m leaving this review.

Made reservations and walked into an empty restaurant—needless to say, not a good sign. The dinner menu was completely different from the one online. We went ahead and ordered and the food was mostly ok, and admittedly our server was very attentive, but overall a mediocre experience. Seems like there was a recent menu reboot that wasn’t successful, so caution unless that changes.
